The Boeing Foundation

The Boeing Company looks to partner with organizations that are leaders in what they do (no matter their size), that promote diversity and demonstrate innovation, and align and collaborate with others toward common, workable solutions to long-term community issues.

The Boeing Company supports projects and programs that align with one or more of five focus areas and corresponding objectives. The focus areas for corporate giving are: education (consisting of early learning and primary and secondary education); arts and culture; health and human services; civic; and environment. Please note: It's important to check local corporate grant-making guidelines before you submit a grant request to see how Boeing sites tailor these objectives to address the particular needs of their communities.

The same is true for the Employees Community Fund; individual boards and committees may tailor their grant-making according to local community needs and the interests of local members.

Check here for local ECF grant-making guidelines. Some sites may only accept grant applications at certain times during the year or only accept grant applications that have received an invitation code in advance.

If you have any questions, please contact the Global Corporate Citizenship representative nearest the location of your organization. He or she may be able to provide some valuable advice that will increase your chances for funding.

BDPA Foundation is willing to work with any local BDPA chapter interested in funding from Boeing. Let us know if you are interested in working on a joint grant proposal with this funding source.
